7 summer sun routes from Cork at unbeatable prices
Don’t be screwed by Aer Lingus's high fares
Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (2nd Feb) announced that it will open seven new summer sun routes, and temporarily base one additional aircraft at Cork for the 3 peak months of June, July and August, to offer Cork consumers competition, choice and much lower summer sun fares than Aer Lingus.
Ryanair’s seven summer sun routes from Cork to Alicante, Barcelona (Reus), Bordeaux, Faro, La Rochelle, Lanzarote and Malaga will deliver an additional 40,000 passengers through Cork airport in just three months. However, Ryanair highlighted that year round growth at Cork is not possible due to the Irish Govt’s €10 tourist tax and the high, and rising, charges imposed by the DAA Monopoly at Cork airport.
Ryanair’s new routes will allow many families in Munster to travel to the sun at low fares from Cork Airport and make up for much of the flights lost as a result of Budget Travel’s recent closure.
Ryanair celebrated these seven summer peak routes by slashing up to 30% off its current fares for travel in late February and March which are available for booking for 3 days only on www.ryanair.com.
Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:
“Ryanair’s seven summer peak routes will mean that for the first time the people of Cork can escape to the sun by availing of Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares, avoiding Aer Lingus’ high fares.
“To celebrate these new summer peak routes Ryanair is slashing up to 30% of all fares which are now available for travel across Europe in late February and March. Since seats at these crazy low prices will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on www.ryanair.com ”.
